White Water has a $1.7 million addition. “The Biggest Thrill in White Water History” began with the idea of a heart-pounding, drop-floor plunge. KaPau Plummet will open this Spring with two 240-foot slides, each launching riders from a drop-floor into a 70-degree plunge followed by a spiraling loop, promising to far exceed the thrill factor of any water ride ever built at the 13-acre tropically-themed water park.

Although hardwood forests cover much of the Branson/Lakes Area, one of the most intriguing features is the “glades,” frequently referred to as “balds” by locals because of their characteristically sparse terrain of semi-desert soil, ledge-rock, scattered cedar trees and prairie plants amidst rolling seas of oak and hickory trees. You’ll most often see glades on the south- and west-facing slopes of hills where intense and prolonged sunlight coupled with fires started by lightning or by Native Americans and early settlers have kept them relatively clear of trees.

BALD KNOBBERS

The area’s balds served as important meeting spots for the 1880’s vigilante justice gangs that organized in Taney County after many years of lawlessness following the Civil War. Started by upstanding citizens, the Bald Knobbers, as they became known, concealed their identities for fear of retribution by criminals and eventually lost popular support due to their increasingly ruthless and seemingly indiscriminate (and sometimes murderous) tactics.

OZARK MOUNTAIN GOLF OASIS Branson is full of stars, be they entertainers on theater stages, flickering fireflies over the Ozark Mountains, or honors being bestowed upon the area’s golf courses. Several have garnered “best-in-kind” acclaim from national publications GOLF, Golf Digest, Golf World and Golfweek, Branson area golf courses are among North America’s best. One of the newest courses, designed by Bobby Clampett, The Payne Stewart Golf Club is an 18-hole course named for the late, great golf pro Payne Stewart. He was from Springfield, Missouri, and the course honors his character and life with plaques at every hole.

Branson Creek was named a “Top 100 in America” by Golf Digest. This 18-hole championship course has been described as “playing two different courses” because of the elevation difference; the front nine plays the valley, the back nine plays the ridge. Many courses stay open year-round with reduced rates (November through March) and discounts for afternoon play during hot weather, for multiple players and in combination with lodging packages. Most of these courses can accommodate tournaments and corporate special events, and offer private instruction by appointment. Ladies love golfing in Branson, too. Several of the courses are shorter and many are designed for all skill levels including forward tees, greens with open fronts, few forced carries and multiple tee boxes. The Branson Area Golf Council is a great source of information about the area’s courses.

Visit www.ExploreBransonGolf.com. With a list of added honors and awards to their credit by Golf Digest, Golf Week, and Travel and Leisure Golf magazine among others, the Branson area courses are among the nation’s finest. Integrating inspired course designs by Tom Fazio and Jack Nicklaus with rugged Ozark Mountain topography, these courses offer scenic and challenging play for beginners and avid golfers alike. Players can expect to find lush Bermuda and Zoysia fairways and tees, bent grass greens, plenty of waterfalls, lakes, creeks and bunker features, and a variety of open and tree-lined fairways.

lakes THREE PRISTINE LAKES The Branson/Lakes Area is well known for its three pristine lakes: Table Rock, Taneycomo and Bull Shoals. Water sports enthusiasts can swim, water ski, wakeboard, tube, boat, sail, scuba dive, jet ski, parasail, kayak and, of course, fish. The lakes’ waters never freeze, welcoming visitors’ activities year-round. All three lakes offer resort lodging, camping and picnicking facilities and easy access to the water at a number of public marinas and boat docks/launch areas. Several commercial docks offer fishing guide services and a wide range of boat rentals, including ski boats, pontoon boats, bass boats and wave runners. Many of the resorts on the three lakes offer guide service, rental boats and private dock facilities for visitors’ boats as well.

TABLE ROCK LAKE Accessible from multiple public and privately-owned locations just minutes to the west of Branson, Table Rock Lake has been delighting visitors and residents alike since it was formed by the damming of the White River in 1959. While visitors can find dozens of places to stay and play along the banks of Table Rock Lake, the area’s commercial developments have placed a high priority on preserving the scenic beauty of the natural shoreline, bluffs, forests and wildlife.

FISHING TABLE ROCK LAKE Missouri’s deepest (200 feet) and clearest reservoir, Table Rock is nationally recognized as a top bass fishing lake. Large numbers of largemouth, smallmouth, Kentucky spotted bass and white bass thrive in its diverse underwater structure and immense forage base. Bass, crappie and large bluegill are caught in abundance. Catfish of all sizes also roam the lake bottom. For a seasonal fishing

LAKE TANEYCOMO Accessible from many points, including downtown Branson, Rockaway Beach, Forsyth, Powersite, Hollister and the Fall Creek area, Lake Taneycomo was formed with the completion of Powersite Dam in 1913. It was originally a section of the White River, and although Taneycomo is now technically a lake, it retains the look and feel of a river. When Table Rock Dam was completed at Taneycomo’s headwaters in 1959, the nature

adventure of the lake changed. Taneycomo’s water now comes from the bottom of Table Rock Lake, making it a cold water lake. The cold, clear water, stocked annually with approximately 750,000 rainbow trout, makes Taneycomo a world-class trout fishery. Resorts and full-service public marinas offer canoeing, kayaking, fishing boats, motors, guides, tackle and pontoons for relaxing and fun-filled lake activities.

FISHING LAKE TANEYCOMO The uppermost portion of the lake is reserved for artificial lures only such as tiny jigs and crankbaits. These headwaters are also ideal for fly fishing with flies that imitate the freshwater shrimp and other natural bait that trout feed upon. The locals say the best way to catch trout is by drifting salmon eggs or angleworms. Affix the eggs or worms to a small hook and cast into holes with an ultra light rod and reel. This method used from a drifting boat or from a dock will yield a nice stringer of trout. Lower Lake Taneycomo harbors a well-kept secret. The downstream area closer to Forsyth offers considerably warmer water and many other species of fish, making Taneycomo a versatile and challenging destination for anglers who are aware of its changing character from one end to the other. Fishing guides are available to help you make the most of your Lake Taneycomo experience.

trails give visitors a chance to get out in the Ozarks BRANSON, MO — Garrett Anderson is proud of the hiking and biking trails offered in the Branson area. “We see a lot of our Branson visitors use the trails,” Anderson said. “Visitors use them just as much as our locals do, if not more.” Anderson, Branson’s economic development director, said getting out in the Ozarks is part of the tourist destination’s heritage.

“We are working on connecting the trails that currently exist, both to each other and to some of the major destinations in the community,” he said. “Right now not a lot of people use the trails specifically from point A to point B. Primarily they are recreational, but we are trying to create some links here and there that people can access and use a bicycle.”

“The way Branson became popular in the first place is because of the natural environment, natural beauty and the availability of the clean air and fresh lakes,” he said. “’The Shepherd of the Hills’ book was the first thing that brought Branson to national prominence. The writer of the book (Harold Bell Wright) came down here from Chicago for his health and to experience the fresh air and get away from the big city.”

Though he’s a proponent of all of the city’s recreational areas, Anderson said he is partial to a couple of the community’s trails.

With more than 10 miles of trails within Branson’s city limits and dozens of other trails designed for hiking, biking and horseback riding nearby, Anderson said he thinks the future of outdoor recreation in and around Branson is bright. Trails, he said, improve the quality of life for the city’s residents and seasonal visitors. Like in many communities, City of Branson Parks and Rec officials are taking steps to expand and improve the city’s trail system and connectivity.

“One of my favorite areas is the Lakeside Forest Area Trails,” he said. “It’s a 140-acre nature preserve in the middle of town. Lake Taneycomo is on the south, with Highway 76 on the north and Fall Creek Road on the west. It was owned by the (Lyle) Owen family, and they sold it to the city back in 1999.” The area includes wooded hills, bluffs and glades, and two easily navigated trails. At one point, a set of 315 stone steps built between 1937 and 1938 lead hikers down a path toward Lake Taneycomo, where a soldier’s cave and small waterfall can be found. Set in mortar on one of the steps is an inscription dedicated to those who built the steep trail and steps. It reads: “Let those who tread here not forget that these steps were not made of stone and mortar alone, but of

sweat, blood and agony.” Near the bottom of the steep descent on one of the steps are inscriptions with the names of those who toiled in their making. The trail is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the season and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the winter. Featured at the Wilderness Area is the Lyle Owen homestead. “There’s an old historic house that Mr. Owen used to live in,” he said. “It was built in 1911 and is beautiful property.” The site includes a barn and 2,000 feet of hand-built stone walls. Work is under way to renovate the property and improve access to it. The Lake Forest Wilderness Area offers about four miles of trails. Branson-area Boy Scout troops play a big role in the construction and upkeep of the parks and trails. Anderson recruits the scouts as needed to help accomplish projects. “The city is in the process of improving the parking and ... an entrance right now,” he said. “Bass Pro Shops has helped us to build a big gateway on the entrance to the park.” While music, comedy shows and themed attractions may be Branson’s bread and butter, the city’s recreational opportunities aren’t to be

forgotten. Websites have been created to focus attention on the city’s efforts to ensure trails and healthy activities are highlighted for locals and tourists alike. “Maps are available,” Anderson said. “There is a separate page for each of the parks and each of the trails throughout Branson.” Another one of Anderson’s favorite Branson places is within easy walking distance of Branson Landing. “Stockstill Park Trails, which is right in the Roark Valley, has about two and a half miles of trails and a park,” he said, noting that the trails wrap around two ball fields and includes pavilions and paved walkways. “We are working on paving more of it this fall and improving the quality of those trails as well. Both are great walks.” The city’s website, www.bransonmo.gov, and the parks department’s site, www.bransonparksandrecreation.com, offer detailed descriptions and maps of Branson’s seven trails and walking paths. Brochures are available at Branson RecPlex, the town’s sports and recreation complex. Written by Dave Woods, courtesy of The Joplin Globe.

Located in front of the Post Office in historic downtown Branson, the “Circle of the Waters” sculpture by Lee Robertson is included in the Smithsonian’s survey of public sculpture. Edwards Art Gallery and Boger Art Gallery, both located at College of the Ozarks, house dozens of paintings. Edwards Art Gallery, part of the Ralph Foster Museum, displays the work of famous Ozarks painter Thomas Hart Benton. His “Departure of the Joads” painting was used as the frontispiece for John Steinbeck’s novel “The Grapes of Wrath,” and his lithographs are part of the museum’s permanent collection. Steve Miller’s murals in the C of O Library are well worth seeing.

The Veterans Memorial Museum is home to the world’s largest war memorial bronze sculpture. It is 70 feet long, weighs 15 tons and portrays the likenesses of 50 actual combat soldiers, representing each state, by sculptor Fred Hoppe, Jr. The museum also features a variety of other sculptures and paintings, including “Red-Tails Strike Again” by artist Mike Hagel. Just north of Branson is Bonniebrook, home of famous artist, illustrator, sculptor, writer and creator of the Kewpie Doll, the late Rose O’Neill. On the grounds are two of Miss O’Neill’s very imaginative Sweet Monster sculptures, “Embrace of the Tree”

and “The Fauness.” The Kewpie Museum houses O’Neill’s original works. Much of the history of the Ozarks can be traced through the crafts of local residents. For generations, residents of the Ozark Mountains made what they needed including quilts, pottery, baskets, glassware and wrought iron. Today, craftsmanship is an integral part of the area’s culture and is celebrated with festivals, events and permanent exhibitions. Autumn Daze are held downtown each fall, showcasing arts & crafts created by area residents. At Silver Dollar City theme park, visitors can watch craftsmen demonstrate

the arts of basket weaving, glass blowing, ironworking and woodcarving, among others. Each fall at the National Harvest Festival, there are dozens of additional artists and craftsmen to demonstrate their skills. Guests can purchase one-of-a-kind heirloom-quality items made by the artisans. Old-time crafts can also be seen at the Shepherd of the Hills Historic Homestead where turn-of-the-century works of traditional Ozark art are on display daily. The Branson Mill Craft Village features the work of more artisans, many of them working on site to showcase their wood, textile, glass and leather art and crafts.

local history A Marvelous Beginning For more than 100 years, the Branson/ Lakes Area has been attracting visitors to the Ozarks, lured by natural beauty and outdoor recreational activities. The first family attraction to draw visitors was Marvel Cave (beneath the property where Silver Dollar City theme park is currently located). First called Marble Cave because its limestone walls were thought to be marble, the cave was described by geologists in the 1860s and explored in the 1880s by adventurers who lowered themselves on ropes 200 feet into the main chamber. Scientific American magazine described the cave in 1885, and word of the natural wonder spread throughout the continent. Canadian mining expert William Henry Lynch read of the cave, purchased it sight unseen, traveled to the Ozarks and, with his two daughters, opened the cave for public tours in 1894.

Following the publication of “The Shepherd of the Hills,” local residents began noticing a great influx of visitors. Many came to the Ross homestead. The Rosses eventually sold their homestead to Miss Lizzie McDaniel of Springfield, who began presenting the very first dramatization of Wright’s story, right on the front lawn.

Red Foley, a legendary country singer with 38 top ten hits, moved to Springfield, Missouri, from Nashville, Tennessee, to host “Ozark Jubilee,” one of the first successful network television shows.

When Ozark Beach Dam (also called Powersite Dam) was built in 1913 near Forsyth and Lake Taneycomo was created, the area became quite a haven for outdoor

On the advice of his physician, minister Harold Bell Wright traveled from his home in Kansas to the Ozarks in 1898 to seek a more suitable climate for his health. He stayed at the homestead of John and Anna Ross, whom Wright later immortalized as the characters Old Matt and Aunt Mollie in his best-selling novel “The Shepherd of the Hills.” Published in 1907, the book told the story of the self-reliant and stoic hill people he encountered in the area and of the wooded valleys, the mountain “balds” and the incredible cave he had seen. The book was a huge success. Millions of copies were sold in several languages, and four movies were filmed, including a 1941 version starring John Wayne, in his first Technicolor film. Wright’s novel has

enthusiasts who came to fish, boat, swim, hunt and enjoy the rugged beauty of the Ozark Mountains. Travelers flocked to the Ozarks on the newly-built White River Line railroad that stopped in the neighboring town of Hollister.

1950 - 1969 TV Shows & Hydroelectric Power The area first gained national prominence in the entertainment industry in 1954 when

LOCAL HISTORY | 1-877-BRANSON | ExploreBranson.com

In 1959, the area was changed forever with the completion of Table Rock Dam. This brought much needed power to the area, spurring the growth of many area businesses. Until 1959, Rockaway Beach, located just a few miles east of Branson on the banks of Lake Taneycomo, had long been a playground for America’s rich and famous with movie stars and U.S. presidents among those who retreated to the small resort community.

Construction of a dam created Table Rock Lake, nationally renowned for bass fishing and water sports. In addition, the cold water from the bottom of Table Rock Lake that was now flowing into Lake Taneycomo changed it into one of the country’s most popular trout fishing lakes.

Branson’s First Families of Entertainment Baldknobbers Jamboree In 1959, Mabe brothers Bob, Bill, Lyle, and Jim began performing twice a week in a converted roller skating rink on the Lake Taneycomo waterfront in downtown Branson. The brothers combined popular country tunes with Ozark Mountain music and threw in a dash of comedy to entertain audiences. In 1969, the Baldknobbers, as the brothers called themselves, built a theater on Highway 76, making their act the longest continuously running show.

They called it Silver Dollar City, and it offered an 1880s steam train ride, demonstrating craftsmen, themed shops and music. The first year, it drew 125,000 people. Following Hugo’s death, Mary and her sons Jack and Peter continued to direct the growth of the family business, and by 1963, Silver Dollar City was Missouri’s top tourist attraction. In 1967, Silver Dollar City received national exposure when the popular “Beverly Hillbillies” television show filmed five episodes at the park.

states. In 2004, Jack and Peter Herschend were inducted into the Hall of Fame of the amusement industry’s largest organization worldwide, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.

Presleys’ Country Jubilee In 1963, the Presley family began a music show at The Underground Theater near Talking Rocks Cavern in Kimberling City with special guests from “Ozark Jubilee,” including Red Foley. They made history in 1967 when they built the first music theater on Hwy. 76. Today, Presleys’ Country Jubilee stars three

Shepherd of the Hills Homestead & Outdoor Drama A few miles east of Silver Dollar City, Dr. Bruce Trimble and his wife, Mary, began staging an outdoor pageant in 1959 based on the best-selling novel “The Shepherd of the Hills.” The amphitheater was actually located on the site where the models for author Harold Bell Wright’s characters lived. Under Mary, her son Mark and his wife Lea’s direction, the production grew into one of the nation’s most popular outdoor historical dramas. In 1985, Gary Snadon (school teacher and former cast member of the outdoor drama) along with his wife, Pat, purchased the homestead. They added the 230-foot tall inspiration tower in 1989, and in 1990, had the Morgan County Church relocated to the homestead to signify the churches where Wright once preached.

Silver Dollar City In 1960, the long-term plans of Hugo and Mary Herschend came to fruition with the opening of a small, old-time Ozarks village attraction atop the long-popular Marvel Cave, about 10 miles west of Branson on Hwy. 76.

The company later expanded to include other popular Branson attractions: White Water water park, the Showboat Branson Belle and Celebration City theme park. Today, Silver Dollar City has grown into a multimillion dollar entertainment complex. The park also hosts six festivals each year. In 1998, Silver Dollar City was given the Applause Award by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions as the top theme park in the world. The family-owned company, Herschend Family Entertainment, currently owns, operates or partners in 19 properties in nine
